Lets be honest…most of the stuff they are talking about on any rugby league related website right now is just junk. Players complaining about not getting paid enough, shoulder charges being banned, the return of Sonny Bill, the loss of Folau…its all just the same old boring crap. So instead of going on and on about that stuff, I would like to do something a little bit different. I want to talk about the current roster of team mascots…(wait before you close the explorer page…I promise to make you laugh just once. It will be worth it)
I dont know what it is about this week but I feel really numb to whats going on. Maybe I’m too close to it because South’s are a factor in September this season. I don’t know what it is but for the first time ever watching football I am speechless. With that in mind I’ve decided to let the games play out and then write an article next week after the results.
Last week I talked about how teams with a first class fullback will make noise in the finals. This week we are looking at a totally different position in the team but no less important. Its the number 9.
Finally… we are now living in a football time where it truly is do or die. Finals football is here and there is no better location to be than inside my head. I love it that teams can no longer rest of the back of ‘there being a next week’ because for some there is none. Just the promise of another “mad Monday’ evening and the idea of watching other teams play ‘real’ football.
Its become increasingly clear that nobody cares who will win the minor premiership as much as which of the teams currently located from 8-14 will be playing finals football. Its a crazy race mid table and I thought it would be fun to investigate who has the potential to be a top 8 team and who doesn’t.
